{Witchy Giveaway}

Okay, I know I said I wouldn't do another giveaway until around Christmas time BUT, I have been stitching up this cute little pattern which I got here and some how ended up stitching 3! I know I'm a freak but lucky for one of you I have decided to give away one of these little cuties to you my fellow and most loyal of blog readers. Just leave me a comment and tell me how much you love me, KIDDING! I'm not that vain (i think) Just Leave me a comment & your good to go! Easy! Peasy!
Also this will be sent in a old wooden frame like the one shown above errr..... below, just don't mind the peeling paint. The frame is made from some old fence boards I literally have laying around. Oh and I'll draw on Saturday.
Color of moon may vary. Gee I sound like the small type in magazines.
Before her "tan"
After being bathed in a couple apple cider packets with a hint of chili powder
(who knew)!
Doesn't she look ever so cute next to other Halloween decor!

I have been sick with a cold the past few days therefore I stitch like a psycho. Look at one of you reaping the benefits of my poor immune system. :) Enjoy!

{All Things Fall}

While I was mindlessly surfing the Internet this evening waiting for Grey's Anatomy to start (yes I know I have 3 more days) I found all these Fall decor ideas that I just love. I really like how some of them are just so simple, I think that's what makes them so beautiful it's like effortless decorating, ya know what I mean? Some of these pictures are sparking more creativity in me, now if only I could find me some money to match my creativity..... Well It's late and I have to play mom in a few short hours Talk at ya Later!

{ Recipe Sunday- Meat Loaf }

I got this recipe from my friend Shauna a few years back and it quickly became a family favorite. The kids ALWAYS go back for seconds. 
It's quick, easy & very tasty. It's so tasty my oldest daughter always asks for this meal for her birthday dinner.
I do recommend!

Meat Loaf
1 lb. Hamburger (I use low fat)
1 tsp. Salt
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup instant oats
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup shredded cheese

Mix together all main ingredients and make into small loaves should make about 6 then pour topping mixture over loaves and bake for 1 hour at 350. YUMMY

1 1/2 Tbsp mustard
2/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Sorry about the lopsided plate, I forgot to put the rolls we had with this meal on the plate. I'm no Martha. Oh and yes the pictures show that I made this recipe a little larger than usual. I wanted leftovers for later.

{More Decor}

I bought this Owl/Pumpkin set (he' stuck to the pumpkin) earlier this year at a going out of business sale, he was retail $26.00 I took him home for $6.50. The urn is from Wally world which is going to be re-purposed into a topiary when the Christmas holiday rolls around and the ribbon is from the Dollar Tree.
My kids like that he lights up.... Me, not so much I'm not about the fiber optics.

And these I just hung from my buffet lamps in my dining room. I got them at the same store for $1.25 each, I just a 75% discount... I am sad that the store in no longer here but I do thank them for the bargains. :)

I am also working on a Halloween house, that was "supposed" to be a bird house. But I have to wait for my hubby to get home as he has the jigsaw in his truck. I hope it turns out cute! And of course I will post it when it's done!

{Swinging Summer Out}

Well I think it's official, we are beginning to count down the nice summer days that we have left. It's still warm here during the day but the nights are getting really chilly & with all the fall flowers in the stores it looks like Fall is inevitably on it's way. So while at the park on one of these fine days I snapped these few shots in terrible 7:00 light. So pardon the ick factor. I know some photographers that are running from their screens right now. And while the other Fab 4 were busy swinging, this is what Jentry was doing. I swear if a picture says a thousand words this one is it. ;) Yes I'm now a Football mom, I'm just glad I'm not a Football widow, we don't watch much sports around here we just play them.This picture is now a new favorite I love that face!

{Some Fall/Halloween Decorations}

I know it's not Halloween or even fall, but seeing as I don't have much in the way of Fall decor this stuff has to do. I have more crap (as my hubby calls it) I mean decor stuff for Christmas, don't we all? And not all of the pumpkins are mine, 3 of them are going to my sister in law in Utah she's always giving stuff to me so I am giving her some pumpkins. :) I think she'll like them. So just don't mind my gross use of pumpkins at the moment. Oh & see the top of that ugly red table above, it was a garage sale find that is going to be trimmed out and painted black (she was a potting bench in her former life). I'll post her when I find some time to get to her. Well I better get back to cleaning and being El' Mom O'....Later!

{I So Laughed @ This}

This post is only for the ladies, trust me if your a guy just keep on moving. I just started Yaz and it's why I haven't been feeling up to 'par' lately. Darn Mother Nature and her freaking Sister Flo, I really needed a laugh this week & this just hit the spot. Hope I don't offend anyone with this, but we are all girls here right!

{Just Me}

EDITED: My blog has been found Saucy by SITS (link is over there on the left)! I was so excited to see this when I woke up this morning. Who knew I was so Saucy? Must be the hair cut & my ever witty charm! Yeah right! Thanks SITS!
So I'm totally stepping out on a limb here and posting pictures of myself. If any of you know me at all & I've said it more than once on here that I LOATH any and all pictures of myself although & I have posted 1 or 2. But I've decided that I need to accept me for who I am. I'm not going to change overnight, I am a mother, a mother who has had 5 kids, my body has gone by the wayside along with my looks. I joke with my friends that the older I get the uglier I get. But I'm working on it SO here I am embracing {ME}. I think we all need to do this every once in a while, if only to remind us of Who we really are... So I'm stepping out from behind my camera (kinda) to say hi my name is Rachel Berry and this is who I am. Feel free to join in or just leave me a comment and tell me how freaking crazy I am for posting this. I know I'm second guessing clicking that Publish Post button below. But here goes.... Gasp!Yeah I know, I'm a total dork it's my version of "shooting" myself. Like the camera shooting me wasn't enough. Plus I was entertaining a little 3 yr old boy who was out of camera range. Okay I'm going to go put a paper bag over my head now.Post note: I once heard from a fellow blogger and now friend Chris that it's nice to put a face with the bloggy name. So here ya go. But yeah I'm pretty much still mortally embarrassed & I think I'll go throw up now.

{Off They Went}

I know this post will be really boring to most of you but it's how my blog rolls. School started yesterday and as much as they bickered with each other this summer I'm going to miss them. But can I also say that my house was so nice and quiet when they left. It was my own little form of heaven. They all had a great day & the teachers loved their gifts I do believe that I am now the official pencil supplier for the kids school! I'm hoping that with the kids gone I can get some projects started/finished and posted! I am excited to get my fall decor up I just need to get my house in order before any decorating can happen. So if you'll hang with me for a bit I promise to post something a little more excited for you all to see. :)
